Full Dome Shows

The Wayne State Planetarium is home to a Spitz High Definition Digital Projection System which enables us to present amazing fulldome films. Each of our planetarium presentations includes a live star talk with our presenter, in conjunction with a full dome film that runs 20-40 minutes in length.

2020 Public shows are showing Phantom of the Universe.

2020 Young Astronomers shows are showing Polaris, the Space Submarine and the Mystery of the Polar Night.

Following is a list of the fulldome films we currently have available for visiting groups. We can feature any one of these films as part of your private planetarium show.


Solar Superstorms, Birth of Planet Earth, and Piano Under the Stars are free to watch at home! Click on the title image to learn more.
